America’s Small Moves Specialist

Sterling Van Lines is “America’s Small Moves Specialist” and the nation’s best choice for a long distance moving company when it comes to small moves. We provide full service for long distance moving with a two-man inside pickup and delivery to any destination in the 48 continental states.

If you’re looking for a trusted long distance moving company, we can help you and your family. For small loads, you’ll get all the benefits of a large load — without being charged for the normal 1,000-pound or 2,100-pound minimum! And we do not charge extra for blankets or padding.

Our Long Distance Moving Services

What to look for in a long distance moving company when moving small loads:

  1. A long distance moving company should be able to give you a guaranteed price for the items you want to move. There should be no surprises. Sterling Van Lines charges based on your specific needs.
  2. Any long distance moving company that specializes in small moves should be experts at one and two-room moves, single pieces, antique moving, piano moving, motorcycles, packing, crating and custom moves. At Sterling Van Lines, we custom-tailor all of our long distance moving services according to each of our customer’s needs.
  3. A long distance moving company should have their own trucks and their own uniformed movers to move it all — plus the usual blanket wrapping and padding to protect your valuables. At Sterling, we provide the best movers and vehicles to get the job done.
  4. A long distance moving company should be able to perform a two-man inside pick-up and delivery to any destination in the 48 continental states. As a long distance moving company for small moves – we can and have been doing it for 30 years.
  5. A long distance moving company must have proper licensing from the Department of Transportation. We meet all the requirements.
  6. There are also special insurance requirements for long distance moving companies. Does your long distance moving company meet these requirements?
  7. Above all, a long distance moving company should have experience. A long distance moving company requires the necessary skills to move a piano up flights of stairs and not damage your piano or your property. How about moving a refrigerator through a smaller doorway without causing any damage to the fridge or the doorway? The personnel involved in helping you move should have years of practice in all kinds of different situations. There are always obstacles that moving companies will run into. Sterling Van Line has the experience and skill to make sure your move is smooth and worry-free.

Why Choose Sterling Van Lines?

Sterling Van Lines specializes in small moves within 90 miles in the Los Angeles area or from state to state (within the 48 continental states). For example, we can ship a grandfather clock from Los Angeles to San Francisco, Kansas or New York. Sterling can pick up one or several items from any state and deliver it to another state. Our 400 pound minimum is far less than most other moving companies. However, Sterling does not deliver intrastate meaning locally within a state (other than California). Intrastate refers to moves that begin and end in the same state.

With a California license and a long-distance license (state to state), Sterling is your best choice to take care of your personal and precious items anywhere in California and throughout the U.S. We have been taking care of people like you for 30 years and will do the same for you. With our trained staff, we make sure your items are properly packed no matter they are being shipped.

At Sterling, we customize your shipment to ensure a safe delivery anywhere in the U.S. even in isolated areas. We go to places that other companies will not go to. We are often the only source available to ship fragile items like a piano anywhere in the U.S. We’re unique in what we do and we take special care because we understand that your items are important to you and your family.

Our staff has been taking care of people’s belongings for 30 years and knows what it takes to get it to your destination in a safe and secure manner. We take care to pack it properly and ship it safely by getting all the details right. For example, will there be stairs at the location? What kind of stairs? How wide? Can it fit through the door? If it’s an item like a sofa, what kind, how big and how wide? We go the extra mile to take care of you and your precious cargo.
